Facts and fiction about food and cooking, by Peter Aitken
Fruit should be eaten on an empty stomach

This whopper has been around in one form or another for quite a while. The dire things that will supposedly happen to you if you eat fruit with other foods are enough to frighten anyone—or more likely, send them into gales of laughter. For example, “graying hair, baldness, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes.” If, however, you only eat fruit on an empty stomach you will have “beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness, and normal weight.” Yeah, right!
The truth is that there’s nothing harmful about eating fruit with other food. In fact, for diabetics and those with fructose intolerance, eating fruit with other foods is generally better than eating it on an empty stomach.
My douchey ex believed this one – he swore that if you ate fruit after other foods, it would sit on the other foods and rot or ferment in your stomach. What a maroon 😉
